• Career Choices Roundtable

    Held Annually Every February

    The Club, Magill Commons

    CSSE Panel

    Career Choices Roundtable is an annual student-led event that stresses a diversity of career paths. Alumni and friends of the University are invited to speak for a few minutes about their unique career path, to take questions from students, and to network with students and faculty at a reception during and after the event. School of Science Peer Mentors organize and host these events; they are seen in the photo gallery moderating the panels. A short video gives the flavor of the 2014 event. If you are an alumnus and would like to share with students at next year's event, please contact the Peer Mentor Program Directors.

    Here is a list of previous alumni speakers at this year's Career Choices Roundtable event.

    The program of panel discussions is as follows:
